This is a hot 80's gem from the heart of steel country. Excellent tune selection, and a well-played, vibrant show. Love especially FOTD, El Paso, Cumberland, Music, from the first. Sampson and Black Peter are killer from the second.

The Dead cranked out tons of awesome shows at great smaller venues in 81. aOnce I master time travel I will transport myself back to this show.

Subject: which is best?
This may be the better aud recording, but I can't quite decide. Whatever the case, the Scarlet/Fire pours a kettle of squonking funk directly into your belly, and it feels good.

Subject: Nice Show
This recording sounds good to my ear. Never been a fan of Lost Sailor but this one has some hypnotic Jerry in it.

Subject: great MNS, notes on sound quality
I prefer this AUD to the companion SBD offered here. The SBD is interesting: it feels particularly Spartan, as if the band were given a buzzcut. This might be because you hear no bass, and barely any drums. The prominent sound is JGÂs guitar and BrentÂs pointedly tinny six note lick. The SBD offers a clearer view of JGÂs licks; but at the 7 minute mark, amidst the intense jam, there is a least once splice/switch which feels weird. With this AUD, you can hear some drums but still no Phil. With the AUD, the end of the jam sounds consistent.

The initial jam starts at 3:30, with the turn coming at about 5:30. Garcia goes into an extended ostinato at aout 6:10, switches to a Watchtower-like buzz sound. By the seven minute mark, Weir and Garcia are both moving to trilled notes and chords. Garcia heads back to single line soloing at the end, and then just ends it by playing the eight note motif. A more exciting finish can be had at e.g. 2/3/78.
